democrats. one of them happens to be harry reid. you know the man who the president would be reliant upon to get something significant through the senate -- >> 1994 and 2004 he has a b rating from the nra. that is higher than almost anyone. this amazing fact. he has received more money from the nra than any senate democrat. when it comes to harry reid and the nra it is a close relationship. >> kind of a love affair. he appeared with wayne lappier in 2010. he is a guy who says i am going to go with my party. so will he really oppose the president on gun issues? >> he is going to try to quarterback what he can. at the end of the day harry reid is a very practical politician. he said i will do what i can to move this forward and everything is on the table. here is the real deal. the part about pragmatism. in 2014 there are a half dozen democrats who don't need an assault weapons ban attack. states like arkansas, louisiana, montana. that is all going to play into factors. it will be interesting to see whether the tide has turned. some polls show at least on some options 89% of republicans sup
and nevada. the home state of the senate democratic leader harry reid who it is significant today basically said the president's proposals were today in his words thoughtful but harry reid did not promise any dramatic action on all of this. a sign that democrats on the hill still may be skiddish in some of these swing states that it could back fire on them if they push too hard on gun control. >> getting reaction from the gun lobby. what are we hearing from. >> they the nra said they think this was an assault on firearms by the president. they got personal today. they put out an ad that basically talked about the president's own daughters and the security they have at their school and suggested in their words the president was an elitist hypocrite. take a listen. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why see skeptical about putting armed security in their schools when they have armed guards at their school. jay carney immediately said this was completely out of bounds. he put out a statement most americans believe a president's childrens should not be used as pawns in the p
whether the chuck schumer, harry reid budget could pass the senate, even with just democratic votes because you have so many people that are up for reelection that are going to be very reluctant to stick their necks out and vote. by the way, as you know, we just had a $600 billion tax increase in the fiscal cliff negotiations. plus, we had $520 billion of new taxes from obamacare. this would be the third tax increase. melissa: i really hope you're right because i feel their is a tide of higher taxes. its role in norway. it will keep all of us out to see no matter what our income bracket because it seems like before this last deal there was this notion that if republicans just gave in and went ahead with some higher taxes that then we could get down to the business of spending cuts. that was the idea that was out there. take your medicine now and then we will get down to the business of cutting spending once we have this out of the way. instead, it has been quite the opposite. this was just the first up. the camel's nose in a tent. now there are many more higher taxes coming. are you
. harry reid, john boehner, all of the leaders. take a look at the flags being waved on the national mall in front of the u.s. capitol. i'm looking out at this picture. it is a huge, huge crowd. anderson cooper on is on the other side. not far away from the washington monument. from your vantage point what does it look like? >> it is an amaze sight here, wolf. you can see flags as far as the eye can see. former president clinton. hillary clinton. haven't seen much of her since she got out of the hospital. nice to see that she's here today with the former president. they make their way towards the podium where they will sit behind president obama and vice president biden as they are sworn in. we are going hear them announce when they walk in. >> like a school teacher. ♪ ♪ >> ladies and gentlemen, the 39th president of the united states, jimmy carter and mrs. rosalynn carter. >> president carter and rosalynn carter stepping down. taking their seats. followed by all the former presidents who will be here. >> john king, something special about this. just the tradition of it all. it is all
against it. in fact, the senators, chuck schumer and harry reid and those who signed that letter, they all voted against the debt ceiling too. now, how does obama come away with that kind of history and accuse the republicans of shutting down the government and demonizing them? how does he do that? >> well, i think there's a long history of partisan hypocrisy and deal making on this deal. what we see obama doing is trying to take control of that political fight so that those who would get political advantage by say voting against raising the debt ceiling which tends to be popular. people -- you know, the american public, they hear debt ceiling and they think no, let's not do that. that sounds awful to give government more money to spend. he's trying to turn it around. but it absolutely is a dynamic that he exemplploited when he w senator. >> robert costa, let's look at this for a minute. republicans have a tricky situation. because the country does not want us to default. and this whole business of managing accounts and prioritizing, there's 80 million payment accounts. i know the interest
issue republicans can see democrats in distress. chief among them senate majority leader harry reid. >> i don't think senator harry reid brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up in election in two years. >> this and other difficulties appeared miles away as mr. obama recited the constitutional oath that cemented the start of his new term. >> i did it. >> sasha was referring to the mix jum four years ago where the chief justice and the president said some of the words of the oath out of sequence prompting a do-over here at the white house a couple of hours later. as sasha said nobody messed up this time and as said a couple of moments ago, that's probably not too bad. >>> robert gibbs was an adviser to the obama campaign and served as the white house's first press secretary. welcome. >> thank you. >> you have seen it you have read it, characterize it. >> i think it's hopeful, and it talks about the values and the visions and the ideals that bring us to this very moment as america. you'll hear the president talk a lot about what we have
john boehner, harry reid, house majority leader eric cantor and house democratic leader nancy pelosi. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >>> everyone is listening to the marine band, the president's own. we have been blessed, we should point out, with today's weather. we're losing the sun a little bit. there's a light cloud cover that just now chose to move in over capitol hill and continuation of that may bring us some snow showers. but it's a bright day and it's so much warmer than last year. last year, we woke up, it was 19 degrees. and by the time the president was taking the oath, i believe it goes to a balmy 28, winds at 13 gusting to 23 if memory serves. and today it's just much more comfortable. and you think to think for all the folks on foot moving around this city, some of whom have traveled great distances to be here. it's just much more comfortable. and someone pointed out a few flurries in the air would make a beautiful television picture later today, mike i can't tellal beschloss. >> maybe we can arrange that. as long as we're talking about weather, ronald reagan had the distinction of t
don't need these weapons for hunting or self-defense. >> the democratic leader of the senate, harry reid, says it's doomed to try to pitch that. i think there he will about some resistance. maybe it won't work. a democrat saying it won't work, it's pretty dire for that particular measure, isn't it? >> it won't be easy. look, there are a lot of lobbyists against any change. we saw that in my own state in the aftermath of virginia check. i acted by executive order to enter mental illness records buy a database which made our state safer. i tried to get my ledge will toure more broadly close the gun show loophole, and they wouldn't do it, and so i know these battles can be tough, but my hope is that sadly, since virginia tech, we have had a role, we have had the shooting in the sikh temple in milwaukee, tucson, newtown. maybe we have learned something and more motive to make these reasonable fixes. >> the president also has 23 executive actions. when you read through the list of 23, include publish a letter from the atf to federally licensed gun dealers on how to run background checks,
-style assault weapons. but harry reid, a gun owner himself, does not think a ban will pass congress. so instead of putting together a bill with multiple layers, it's likely they will hold a vote on individual elements of the president's plan. >> the numbers around the country, most people favor having the ability to dairy -- carry guns. the american people want us to be very carb just what we do. >> reporter: president obama knows he needs to win over members of his own party before he can target his own party. >>> an unusual proposal to regulate assault weapons in san jose is getting mixed reviews. a lawyer in san jose drafted and ordinance and presented it at a city council committee meeting yesterday. it calls for anyone in san jose who wants to own an assault weapon to be required to pass a mental health check and then turn the weapon over to police for safe keeping. if owners want to check out their weapons, they would have to say why. >>> san jose mayor chuck reed said he's not hour it's a good idea for cities to make their own gun laws while the president is taking this on as a federal -
they control. also because of democratic potential opposition in the senate. of course harry reid, the majority leader, has long been a big supporter of the nra and they have returned the favor politically to him. that is one of the reasons he won re-election in difficulty fashion in 2010. now in 2014 other democratic senators in swing states who are up. jon: up for re-election. >> that's right. jon: if they cast a vote that is seen to be against the interests of firearms owners, hunters and the like, they could be in real trouble? >> guns and nra are both very popular in states like alaska and montana and arkansas and south dakota where there's a hunting culture, and, those senators like mark begich in alaska, will he actually vote for a gun ban? that i think is very problematic for the president. you're hearing some of these democrats, either noncommittal and saying i think this goes too far. jon: i was a little surprised when i heard about the executive actions the president was taking. it didn't seem to amount to, you know, large steps? >> no, i think that's right. they were pretty small th
legislation the president pushes will be met with opposition in congress and even harry reid says an assault weapons ban is unlikely to pass. gun rights advocate, look at this, since the newtown shooting a little over a month ago, n.r.a. added 250,000 members, quarter million people in a month and brings total membership to 4.25 million. here is another number, the fbi says it conducted record 2.8 million background checks in december, one month. all application for gun purchases, and gun sales are booming and manufacturers can't keep up with demand. last night governor cuomo signed what he called the toughest regulations in the country. magazine capacity limits and assault weapons ban and a controversial part of the new law, requirement that obligates, therapists, doctors as well to tell authorities if they think a patient will cause harm to others, a big shift in the patient-therapist privacy regime. a couple of minutes from now, clinton advisor doug schoen will join us, supports a national assault weapons ban. what does he think of a shift in the patient privacy? we'll ask him in a couple
the nra and even harry reid questions whether it can pass congress. how hard would you push for assault weapons ban, and if one cannot pass congress, what other measures would need to be included in a broad package in order to probe of gun violence successfully. >> the vice-president and a number of members of my cabinet went through a very thorough process over the past month, meeting with a lot of stakeholders, including the nra. listened to proposals from all quarters, and they have presented me now with a list of sensible, common-sense steps that can be taken to make sure the violence we saw a new town does not happen again. i will meet with the vice- president today. i expect to have a fuller presentation later in the week to give people some specifics about what i think we need to do. my starting point is not to worry about the politics. my starting point is to focus on what makes sense, what works. what should we be doing to make sure that our children are safe, that we are reducing the incidence of gun violence? i think we can do that in a sensible way that comports with the sec
here. first of all, there was a lot of talk about harry reid, a senate majority leader, who's a gun owner. he's from the gun rights state of nevada. he has been very cautious saying that the senate should be cautious, but my understanding from talking to a number of sources is that he's speaking for himself but he's also speaking from the perspective of political reality, that there are a number of people in his caucus who would potentially really get slammed for supporting anything. so that's why he wants to take it slow. he doesn't want his people to walk the plank and suddenly not be the senate majority, lose the majority. but the other thing i think is really important to keep in mind is just how different this is. kind of taking it up to 5,000 or 10,000 feet. i cannot tell you how many times after so many of these tragedies, after one of their own gabby giffords was shot, calling up senate democratic sources saying, are you going to do anything? nope. nothing's changed. after aurora, nope, nothing's changed. n newtown changed the dialogue, the decision at the white house and he
. harry reid is the democratic majority leader of the senate. the nra stayed out of his senate race, they probably could have defeated him. they stayed out. he's not a big supporter of gun control, but he did issue a statement today saying that the president's proposals were thoughtful and that everything should be considered. he didn't endorse them. he didn't endorse new gun control. but he could have blocked them. the president at least has the democrats saying we'll give you a fair shake here, mr. president. he's going to have a hard time getting some democratic votes, however. then comes the republican controlled house and, brooke, look at the statements out from the republicans in the house, conservative republicans in the senate, the president doesn't have the votes. is he going to say i tried and then walkway or is he going to travel the country? you heard him in that remark, he said he needs help. he wants parents, members of congress come home, he wants people to call them, write them letters. will he sustain that for two months, three months, four months and more if need b
with fellow democrats. >> they do. you look at harry reid from nevada, it's clear he's not going to take the lead on this in the senate. he will leave that to his chief lieutenant. today we had pat leahy come out and he said quote we will pass what we can get. that doesn't mean -- that sure doesn't sound to me like he believes the president's entire package is going to get through. there are also senators democrats up for re-election in gun states like montana louisiana, south dakota. so those are real issues for the president because, of course, they want to keep control of the senate and also there are western senators who are going to be looking for some middle ground. >> see, the key words, middle ground. >> if there is any. >> gloria, thank you. >>> one of the country's oldest airlines now has a brand new look. we're going to show you how american airlines is engaged in a major makeover. >>> plus, it's not just 20s anymore. the big change that you'll be seeing very soon at some atms. [ male announcer ] returns are easy with free pickup from the u.s. po
. then they talk about the democrats because harry reid talked about the assault by big dan and getting it to the united states senate controlled by the democratic party. it ain't going to happen. so if you look at the red state senators up for reelection alabaster down south, that's what i'm talking about in terms of overreach. if this is something we such close the loophole, catch 40% escaping and i'm guns if they mentally disturbed had reasonable restrictions. the problem in the heller case is you couldn't have a can bus registered, but they would much reregister. that is in effect that you can't do it and that tesco to fire. so if it's common sense, quite frankly i don't know why somebody needs 10 bullets. it doesn't seem like some magic number to me. to the gunowners, that sounds like something somebody made up. the president's executive orders can be accepted by the republican party. if they did close down 90 people buying guns. you think this through. >> small items on ticket items. >> yes. in the brady bill of 93, about effectively. for background check. the assault weapons ban
day. and doug mcelway with more from washington. >> harris, a change in gun laws after the sandy hook massacre is beginning to meet realities. and rand paul is proposing to introduce to nullify. and dianne feinstein-- >> leader reid intends to make guns one of the earliest things we consider on the floor and chairman leahy talk about hearings right away i think you're going to see action quickly. >> some doubt that. there are 20 democratic seats up for grabs in the year 2014 including in the gun friendly states of arkansas, alaska, iowa, louisiana, colorado, new hampshire and south dakota. after the assaults weapons ban in 1994 democrats lost control of the house, all of which suggests compromise may be in the works. >> we don't expect it all to pass or in its current forms. we think that there are elements of it-- >> anding this a moment we can do something about mental health, information sharing, maybe background checks and or things as well, but it has to be a plan that could possibly work or president won't get it done. >> other republicans suggest that a new assault weapons ban
